You've got to be kidding!
40 week appointment today and even after all the contractions I am still not dilated! What is that all about? I must have a cervix of steel or something. Good to know it was doing a good job keeping baby safe, but enough already! Since I’m still not dilated they won’t schedule an induction until 41 weeks, but at least I now have an end in sight. The plan is to be admitted on Wednesday evening and get Cervidil after be rechecked after 12 hours. After that things will either progress on their own, the OB will break my water, I’ll get Pitocin, or worst case my cervix stays closed and more Cervidil. So still a lot of possibilities, but at least we have a plan and a finish line in sight. Now let’s just hope that I can go before that and avoid all of the above. Now to focus on getting labor started on its own in the next 6 days, off to eat some spicy food for dinner.
